If this goes bad, I guess it will probably be easier to buy a new one.

So my next question is, what size tubes are in your rads?
(I assume they are only 2 rows)

Before and After
(this is the worst looking area, the rest is spotless)
I let it sit for a week with 3 bottles of CLR and water in it

headlight brackets

headlight brackets are one off castings in aluminum,reinforced and with a smaller access for mounting.my original ones were starting to crack.also locktited in high tensile studs ,easier to mount ,no fear of striping threads and i could use locknuts to stop them coming loose.can anyone identify the rear end

But I also want to go through the p/s pump to see if I can reduce the pressure.
(I just need to figure out what it's off of.
My '38 was the same way even after a proper alignment, so I installed a pressure reducer. It slows down the reaction a little and makes the effort a little firmer, which helps the "twitchy" feeling of ANY movement of the wheel, turning the tires. Much happier with the steering stability now.

Leakie That does not sound too far off. GM pumps can go up to 1500 psi but a Mustang rack can only handle 600-800 psi. Maybe just the refreshing that you did to the front end will help your problem.

matts37chev The rack is from Art Morrison, I believe it's an AGR brand, but I am not sure what it's based on.
Morrison said it should be 1200 psi max

Leakie Borgensen makes a reducer for ps pump if it is GM pump. Do you have a Mustang rack or a T-bird. The T-bird rack can handle the extra pressure the Mustang can't.
